The Forest City

Maine's biggest and perhaps most vibrant city, Portland was established as a fishing village in 1633 and grew to become New England's largest port.
Get out of town with these interesting Portland side-trips: Nubble Lighthouse (in York), Marginal Way Walkway (in Ogunquit) and Kancamagus Highway (in North Conway). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sea views from Portland Head Light, do a tasting at Maine Mead Works, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Allagash Brewing Company, and take an in-depth tour of Victoria Mansion.
